No: Fruit in its natural state has a much lower glycemic index (the impact on your blood sugar) than fruit which is turned into sauce, "butter," jam, jelly, dried, juiced or cooked. That said, if you are not a diabetic, a little apple butter on some whole wheat toast, perhaps with a protein source like eggs, would not be bad for you.

Better than jelly: apple butter is very high in sugar and calories, making it a less healthy option. However, it is still healthier than jelly since it is made with whole apples and thus contains a small amount of fiber.
